And please be sure to make a distinction between PTA and PTA, too.
In the USA, PTA stands for Parent-Teacher Association, while PTA
in Switzerland (and probably in other germanic countries) has the
*much* more scouting-related meaning "Pfadfinder Trotz Allem" -- Scouts
Despite All, which the denomination for the special troops and packs
for handicapped scouts.
